-- 3:06-4:52 of Rider is patched from an unknown third master.
-- The beginnings of all of the tunes from the NRPS set are missing from the reel master. Unfortunately, there is no known master which can provide these pieces.
-- There are some master tape warble problems in 6:50-7:55 of Baby Blue.
-- A small master tape pause obscures the transition to Dark Star. No more than a few seconds of music are missing.
-- There is a small master reel glitch at 0:40 of Dancin' in the Streets.
-- Normaliztion, patching, EAC, and SHN encoding by Jack Warner.

Great show but archival
I think the other Nov. 8 taping is at least marginally better than this offering. Yes, this is a killer show and it's great to have a record of the days when the Dead put on an acoustic set followed by a NRPS set followed by their own sets, but, also yes, be aware that this is a distorted, mono mix. Archival more than musical.

Acoustic show, great setlist and awesome banter between songs (Godzilla conversation after Dark Hollow)
